|Some of our Thanksgiving meal at our house.|
We ended the evening with Rich's family joining us for dinner at 5:30 pm. Luckily, I had prepared most items the day before and just had to throw them in the oven. Since there was no way to prepare a turkey with all of our running around we pre-ordered four rotisserie turkey breasts from Martin's, which we picked up on our way home from the Turkey Trot and put in the fridge until dinner time. If you have not tried these turkey breasts, they are a MUST have. They ended up being cheaper and more tasty than any other turkey that I've tasted over many Thanksgivings. We ordered them a couple of years ago and were quickly reminded why it is such a good idea!

I slept until 11:00 pm and then got up just in time to tell everyone goodnight and eat another meal. Yes, my metabolism is ridiculous. Most nights I wake up around 1:00 or 2:00 and eat cereal or oatmeal before I have my "real" breakfast at 4:30 am. I guess after almost four hours of sleep my body realized it was hungry again, so I ate a bowl of oatmeal and then a heaping plate of stuffing and cranberry sauce. Who said you can't eat carbs late at night?
